John Oliver drags Ron DeSantis over his weird dating ploy
John Oliver went to town on Ron DeSantis after learning about the Florida governor’s bizarre dating tactics during his bachelorhood. As the Last week tonight The host explained that DeSantis (or “Tiny D,” according to Trump’s latest nickname) would tell a potential date that he wants to take her out to Thai food, only that he purposely mispronounces it as “thigh” food. If the date corrected him. DeSantis would immediately rebound because he doesn’t want a woman to correct him.
Oliver couldn’t believe that “Business Fred Flintstone” would actually do this in real life, and it made even less sense when he tried to imagine the scenario. About the Daily Beast:
“You went out to dinner and out of nowhere your date tells you that he really likes ‘thigh eating’. And you’re like, “Wait, did he just call Thai food “thigh” food? Maybe I misheard you.” But then he goes on to say he knows a great “thigh food” place in the area, all the while staring at you very intently, almost studying your reaction. So, as politely as you can, say, “Wait, do you mean Thai food? Like from Thailand?’ And then all of a sudden his face falls down and he says, ‘I’m sorry. I forgot I have a doctor’s appointment tonight’ and he leaves — leaving you both the check and the biggest first-date disaster story ever.”
However, Oliver used the dating ploy as a way to roast Fox News for its flattering coverage of DeSantis, much to Trump’s dismay.
‘Let me put it this way,’ said Oliver. “If Fox News ever went on a date with Ron DeSantis, they definitely wouldn’t correct him for calling it ‘thigh eating.'”
